Amiwest 2014 - Saturday

It is a busy day here at Amiwest 2014!


So many Amigas and plenty of interest in the systems I brought along, as well as some interesting announcements from Trevor and Steve Solie.


The announcement of AmigaOS 4.1 Final to be released by the end of this year as a paid upgrade.

Trevor introduced Amistore, radiance and showed the x5000 running Linux and AmigaOS4.1 - as always with the boing ball shoes and tie!


Talking about the Radiance suite:


Amistore video presentation:


The new Sam460cr model was mentioned today.

The acquisition of AmigaWorld.net by A-Eon was also mentioned, meaning that both amiga.org and amigaworld.net are both now owned by A-Eon.

The first commercial xorro expansion for the x1000 was also mentioned, due to go on sale in early 2015 a serial logger:

I had plenty of questions about MorphOS and the Minimig during the day which is great! 

Here is my MorphOS PowerBook viewing one of my YouTube videos:


Bill (tekmage) then ran through the latest games released for Amiga in 2014.

  2. very nice.... a-eon seems to by every amiga site and what is more, they try to by and keep everything possible....not only to keep the faith alive but intent to bring amiga on top of the multimedia computing business...even hyperion developers and hdrlab may get their monthly
    payments in order to keep things running.....trevor's greatest wish: to bring back reputation to
    Amiga it really deserves.....above wintel and Apple.....to make Amiga the nr.1 choice for everything in the digital world....Trevor seems to be the new Jack tramiel....
